I'm an Idiot10 Jun 2022I'm an Idiot Not something I say very often. Well, maybe once a week. Not as often as certain Prime Ministers, anyway.I am an idiot because I assumed that people were like me, behaved like me, thought like me.In the case of the Lemonrock App, I was very wrong.It all has to do with your screen, dear reader / smartphone owner.A few people have recently said to me, "Mac, I had to uninstall your App because I couldn't get out of it."What?I actually emailed a chap the other week to explain how to get his menu back when Lemonrock was taking up the entire screen. I told him how to scroll up from the bottom of the screen. I thought this was obvious. I also thought that full-screen apps were a neat thing, until I realised that most people expect their status bar at the top of the screen to remain visible; same with the bottom navigation buttons.The full-screen mode is supposed to be used for things like games, not run-of-the-mill, brilliantly designed Music Gig Guides. Or Pub Apps. D-o-h.___Mac, slightly wiser (and humbler) than yesterdayP.S. If you un-install Lemonrock, and re-install it, you will get your buttons back.
FB - WTF?9 Jun 2022FB - WTF? I have never "liked" Facebook. (That's a joke, get it?) Well, not since I realised that it was out to screw us all. And one day, about 5 years ago, I had to stop.I stopped because I had found myself "tailing" someone on Facebook. I didn't know her very well, but Facebook provided me with lots of information about her.On that day, it suddenly became very clear: I was behaving badly, and Facebook was the conduit, the opportunity, the magic potion that made it possible. I gave it up.And I have been very happy since then.However, I'm now trying to set up a new business, Pubs in Town, that will help people find out about events in their local pubs. I decided to use Facebook to tell people all about this great new app. Eventually, I would give money to Facebook to promote my message to pub owners all over the UK.But, hey everyone, guess what happened?Stay tuned.___Mac, a real person
Platinum Pubs31 May 2022Platinum Pubs It's funny. The Queen had only been reigning for 48 years when Lemonrock burst from its creator's loins (well, his mind, perhaps. Or fingers).What has Lilibet done in the last 22 years? Well, she definitely didn't write a music website or a pub app.So now that we're celebrating all things red, white and blue, it cannot fail to amuse us that these are the predominant colours of Pubs in Town, our brand new app that does everything that other apps tried to do (and does better). Blue markers on a white map, with red badges to indicate the totals for the area you're looking at: how many pubs, events and search results from your filter.I didn't design Pubs in Town to coincide with or complement Her Majesty's Big Event. But I have to admit that the timing is perfect: what better way for our nation's pubs to get their bank holiday events promoted to their local customers (and tourists!)... and with a free 14-day trial that no Corgi would sniff at, Pubs in Town is a Right Royal Success already!___Mac, a bit flushed

Is somebody hiding something?___Mac, so confused
